Alfred Bunter was assigned as the personal valet of Arsen Shackleton when Arsen was only six years old. He spent much of the intervening years alternately attempting to keep up with his charge or smooth the ruffled feathers caused by his passing, no small task in the wake of “Young Master Shackleton.”
Alfred, however, was uniquely equipped to manage the rough and tumble lifestyle of his charge. He is unflappably cool in the face of any situation, and always maintains a calm, professional exterior. He has seen Arsen come unscathed through countless mishaps, so he rarely worries about his charge’s health, but he often has to apply himself to cleaning up the messes caused by those same mishaps. He has become adept at diplomacy, and has learned several languages and local customs to aid in this. He has also mastered a wide variety of subjects, including history, geography, natural sciences, heraldry and a smattering of more esoteric subjects to round out his education.
As Arsen’s valet, he has grown naturally fond of him, although he was regularly frustrated by his charge’s pig-headedness and his desire to pursue “adventure”, something Alfred considers most un-gentlemanly. He sincerely hopes Arsen will grow out of this phase soon, and return to Shackleton Manor to retake his place in high society.
